Turkish Men Wear Miniskirts for Ozgecan
on 25 February 2015
Men in Turkey are combatting violence against women through an unusual approach: wearing miniskirts. The protests come after the death of Ozgecan Aslan, a 20-year-old student who was brutally murdered after defending herself from an attempted rape. Using the hashtag #ozgecanicinminietekgiy, which translates to “wear a skirt for Ozgecan," men have taken to both social media and the streets in a nationwide display of solidarity supporting Turkish women.
